I should be dead; and that's not really being overdramatic.

My relationship with food is ... touchy.

I'm allergic to a lot of it. And some days even things I am not allergic can cause problems. Nuts, for example, I can eat with no problems for months and then for like 2 months if a nut passes by my lips - well, let's not get graphic - I spend more time in bathrooms than normally.

I've gotten pretty good at letting my body tell me what it needs. I've been craving cauliflower. Weird? obviously. But hey, who am I deny myself cauliflower?

Walking home from yoga yesterday, I was pondering what I'd have for lunch. Mac n Cheese...no no no, but cheese sounds good. Hmm...cheese on what? As I crossed over High Street, it hit me. My day could not go on without Mashed Potatoes with peas and cheese melted over it (and cauliflower...but even I think that's weird, so let's not mention it). This was it. I needed mashed potatoes.

Anything you need today?

    I get weird cravings too like pasta with cream sauce, onions, broccoli and carrots.

  3. Chris - I craved peanut m&m's yesterday. Usually when I crave sugar it's my body craving fat -- and if i eat yogurt or avocado it goes away. Falafel...Now you're talking dirty.

    Sara - Um, is that a midwest thing? haha. Broccoli - so good!

  6. Um, I don't know what gyro is...I do like tzatziki sauce though -- maybe it's just words with t's and z's?

    The above is a good description...the tz's in tzatziki did appear interesting looking.

  9. I love mashed potatoes and I love cauliflower but I have never put cheese over them and I never will :)

    I'm craving for some chocolate right now. I need to go eat something or I will punch someone in the face (I'm not a violent person, I swear).

  11. A pox on your allergies!

    The top things I crave are veggies, meat and CANDY (put in reverse order to fool you).
